A 44-year-old Indonesian domestic worker in Singapore who had tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has since been declared healthy.
The Indonesian Embassy in Singapore said in a statement on Wednesday that the Indonesian citizen had been discharged from the Singapore General Hospital, where she had been treated for two weeks, on Tuesday.
In compliance with Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act, the woman’s identity was still unavailable for public disclosure, the embassy wrote in the statement.
"There are now no Indonesian citizens reported to be COVID-19 positive in Singapore,” the embassy said.
Embassy spokesperson Ratna Lestari Harjana said the woman was recuperating and would soon start working again as usual.
“She doesn’t have any plans to return to Indonesia yet,” Ratna told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.
The woman, whose employer had also tested positive for COVID-19, had been confirmed positive on Feb. 4.
There have yet to be any confirmed coronavirus cases in Indonesia to date, but three Indonesian nationals on the virus-stricken Diamond Princess cruise ship have tested positive for the disease. (rfa)
